Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Dublin Tour & Book of Kells
Tour begins 2:00 PM at your Dublin hotel. Set out on a guided tour of Dublin. Highlights include 18th century Georgian houses with brightly painted doors, tranquil parks, and wide O’Connell Street. Take a guided walking tour through the campus of Trinity College to view the illuminated manuscript of the Book of Kells. In the evening, enjoy a welcome drink with your group before dinner. ( D)

Day 2: 6th Century Glendalough & Waterford Crystal
Enjoy the delightful scenery of the Wicklow Mountains on the way to Glendalough, a stunning example of Ireland’s beauty. Explore the remains of one of the most important monastic sites in Ireland, founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century. Walk through the deep valley to view the picturesque ruins of a round tower, churches, and Celtic crosses. Head southeast to the Dunbrody Famine Ship, an authentic reproduction of an 1840’s vessel that brought desperate Irish emigrants fleeing famine to the New World. Continue on to the city of Waterford, where before dinner you will take a gentle stroll around the narrow streets of the historic city with a local guide. (B, D)

Day 3: Cobh & Blarney Castle
Witness the creation of crystal masterpieces during your visit to the House of Waterford Crystal. Travel to Cobh for a guided walking tour – this harbor town was the last port of call for the Titanic in 1912 and was also the main point of embarkation for Irish emigrants between 1848 and 1960. Proceed on to Blarney, to visit Blarney Castle and kiss the famous “Stone of Eloquence” or explore the tranquil gardens. Journey west through rugged countryside and settle in to your centrally located hotel in Killarney. (B, D)

Day 4: Ring of Kerry Drive & Killarney
Discover the natural beauty of the Emerald Isle on Ireland’s most popular scenic drive, the Ring of Kerry, with plenty of photo stops along the way. Stop for lunch, then take a stroll around Sneem and stop at Moll’s Gap for its panoramic views. Enjoy the evening in Killarney for dinner on your own and perhaps a visit to one of the town’s many lively pubs. (B, L)

Day 5: Cliffs of Moher & Galway
Embark on a ferry ride across the River Shannon Estuary. Travel along the coast of County Clare. View the Cliffs of Moher, which soar almost 700 feet above churning Atlantic swells. Walk along the top of the cliffs to O’Brien’s Tower for great views of Galway Bay and the Aran Islands. Head to Galway and join a local guide for a brief stroll through the twisting streets of the old city before spending some time on your own. (B, D)

Day 6: Sheepdogs & Derry's Medieval Walls
Stop in the pilgrimage town of Knock to see one of the world’s leading Catholic shrines. Visit the church where villagers saw a vision of the Virgin Mary in 1879. Immerse yourself in Irish farm life during a visit to an authentic working farm and watch trained sheepdogs round up mountain sheep. Head to Donegal for some free time in this charming town. Proceed to Derry and meet a local guide to discover the history of this ancient city that retains its fortified medieval walls dating from 1613. (B, D)

Day 7: Giant's Causeway & Titanic Belfast
Explore the northern coastline and the Giant’s Causeway, enormous hexagonal columns formed by volcanic activity over 60 million years ago. Visit Titanic Belfast and learn about the ill-fated ship through state-of-the-art displays. See the docks where the famous liner was built just over a century ago. Stop at the Glyde Inn for a farewell dinner with Irish specialties and entertainment featuring traditional Irish music and songs. (B, D)

Day 8: Tour Ends in Dublin
Your tour ends after breakfast. (B) B: Breakfast; L: Lunch; D: Dinner All components of this tour (hotels, visits and attractions) for 2020 itineraries are subject to change until finalized in September 2019.  >

Well run tour once again. Tony our guide/driver was superb!

By Susan T on Jul 03, 2019

This nine day trip included all bucket list sights that are important to see in Ireland. It was a fast pace tour but it was a pleasant trip and made enjoyable with the tour guide. We couldn't see Ring of Kerry due to the yearly Cycling event in Killarney. Our tour guide had an alternative and his choice was wise and we still saw incredible sites. Also the tour guide made recommendations for local places to eat and proved to be the local deal! I recommend this tour if you want to see all of Ireland and the points of interests in this amount of time.

By Michael T on Jul 03, 2019

This was a great trip but if you want to see Ireland in a more relaxed way book a slightly longer tour. We enjoyed all the stops on the tour but it seemed a bit rushed.

By Beth Z on Jul 01, 2019

This was an 8 person vacation, ages 18-70+. Our entire family from various parts of USA met in Dublin for this wonderful tour. It was our 3rd CIE tour and our children and grandkids first. I am convinced all of us will travel with CIE. Our intention was to give them an overview of both Ireland and Northern Ireland. It did exactly that. Our tour guide, David, was good and informative. The accommodations and food were outstanding. The only downside was a closing dinner which was not like the others we'e experienced in the past. That evenibg's food was not well prepared either. But we enjoyed or time together and hope to do this again sometime.

By Wendy C on Jun 05, 2019

Our trip to Ireland with CIE was exceptional. We were able to see many places in a short amount of time. It allowed us to sample many areas of the country, and left us with the desire to return and spend more time in certain areas. Our tour guides were knowledgeable and informative and friendly. Our tour guide and driver David was outstanding! He was very accommodating and funny. He shared his love of his country in a way that only someone who has lived here could do. Our entire group enjoyed his attention to details and humor. Never having taken a bus tour before I was pleasantly surprised at how much fun we had. If I were to book another trip it would be through CIE. I cannot wait to return to Ireland. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!

By Bonnie-Lynn P on May 08, 2019

Wonderful trip....hotels and meals were excellent...I paid for airport pick up from CIE....the were not at the airport for the pick up of my daughter and me. I provided all of the travel information, however, they were not there. I went to the travel bureau booth....they put a call through for me, as requested from CIE....CIE had no record of my arrival. After much conversation, we arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport. Because of the prolonged delay, we missed all of the first day tour of Dublin.

By Thomas M on May 06, 2019

CIE is a very solid tour company. This was our third trip with CIE and we have toured with five other companies, all well known. CIE is not the cheapest, but the quality is excellent and there are no optional excursions. Everything is included in the price. This means they stick to popular tour options. Optional excursions offer the chance to customize the tour or to opt out of some selections. There were no CIE scheduled attractions that we would have left out. Service and organization were very sound as always.

By Katherine R on Apr 17, 2019

My husband and I had a great time. It was a wonderful way to see alot; be prepared to keep on the move!

By Glenda S on Apr 08, 2019

Our driver/ guide, Murt, made the whole experience very enjoyable. He had a great sense of humor, provided interesting stories & historical events and gave us the best amount of time each day to see all the events on our schedule.

By Linda C on Apr 08, 2019

Our bus driver/tour director was awesome!! He was Very knowledgeable, funny, courteous. He gave us much information on Ireland and the Irish people. He even explained customs, cultures and landmarks before we got there. His name- Murt!! The Best!!

By Jeanne B on Dec 05, 2011

One hotel was unsatisfactory. Most hotels need more training for the service staff.

By Bobby D on Nov 21, 2011

Everything top shelf. Will book again ! Thanks!

By Jeanne H on Jun 20, 2011

Accommodations and meals were better than expected - location of hotels was central, so easy to see more of the town if time allowed. Rooms were spacious, clean with comfortable beds, all amenities - except only the Everglades Hotel had comfortable pillows - all other hotels they were like big slightly soft rocks! The agent was very helpful in selecting dates for our insurance that provided maximum coverage. I'd definitely request her as my agent again.

By Owen C on May 03, 2010

I would like to commend our travel consultant for the fantastic job in booking our tour. We had an awesome time on the Irish Adventure tour as we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary, and we highly recommend it. Thanks for the memorable experience.
